______________!!!DAILY DEVIATION!!!________________
_________________OMG OMG OMG__________________
______________my :heart: is racing :D

I was alarmed by the number of messages and went straight to the DD page and scrolled, scrolled, scrolled and... THERE IT WAS!!!

:heart: A TRILLION thanks to :icontaho: for suggesting it and :iconikue: for the feature :heart:

To every one that :+fav:es this... :D :D :D Consider yourselves thanked! :D :D :D

Every comment will be replied (I'm glad it's a holiday in Portugal) :D

************************************************
_________________RECIPE_______________
Drawn with pencils on paper (duh) -> scanned -> imported to photoshop -> cleaned and edited lines and proportions with the photo (layered) -> printed it -> drew the inside illustrations with Rotring indian ink pen -> scanned -> inked some more with photoshop -> placed on Illustrator -> LIVETRACED (yes, I took the shortest route here) -> simultaneous editing on photoshop and updating the "livetrace" to get desired shapes and correct fills -> expanded the trace to get editable vectors when the linework was "as desired" -> colouring with illustrator -> applied some shadows to get volume and the illusion of layers -> the end
total time... I can't remember but it was 2 weeks work
______________________________________


After this [link] this [link] this [link] and this [link] and... with the innovation of "youtubes": 1st - [link] ( OST by Clã - O sopro do coração) 2nd - [link] (silent movie in B&W :P ) 3rd - [link] (with yours truly on the "vocals", and, yes, I "give" you guys lots of "W.I.P.s")


...and under 15 days after I started... IT'S FINISHED!!! :D

It's a drawing of the original photo "Afterwards" by *ulorinvex [link]
The beautiful Christiane gave me permission to use her photo to "work" on. And the result is above :D
You know... I tease but I deliver :D

LOTS of closeUpssss here : [link]

*edit (comments)*
Finished at 6 something AM... I have 2 hours of sleep on my bones...
This is definitely my ALL TIME FAVOURITE! From any work I've done so far.
This took too long to finish but I just love the result :D
